SPORT PSYCHOLOGY

Mental toughness is key to successful athletic performance and can be the difference between winning and losing. Struggling with anxiety and emotion management? Confidence or motivation challenges? Preparing to compete at the next level? Recovering from an injury or transitioning out of the world of sports? Peak Mental Performance Coaching, LLC works with athletes of all skill levels, ages, and sports to  develop individualized plans and learn the mental skills necessary to overcome mental blocks and enhance athletic performance.

Unfortunately there is still a stigma to the word psychologist as if something is wrong or broken in a person. A sports psychologist is a psychologist who takes psychological interventions, principals, and research and applies them to the world of sports to increase an athlete’s mental toughness and improve performance on and off the field. In other words, the goal is to help the athlete better understand the connection between how they think and perform, and teach them mental skills to overcome barriers that may be holding the athlete back from his or her optimal performance. The goal of a sport psychologist is not to fix a person, but rather help them grow the mental skills to perform at a higher level. At Peak Mental Performance Coaching LLC, our goal is to help an athlete grow from his or her strengths, recognize and manage his or mental weaknesses, and take the skills learned onto the field, and into the rest of life.
